  • Nostepinnes & Niddy Noddies...

    If you don't know what they are, you probably don't need one......



    The first piccy is a traditional Niddy in the background, with my new idea in the foreground.

    The second piccy is the new idea - a flat pack Niddy Noddy, also more robust and to have interchangeable handles for various skein lengths.

    Finally a selection of Nostepinnes in various woods.

    Chris.

    I love the look of those, but have no idea what they're for!

                I was looking at these the other day and wondering about making some for Etsy but look like you beat me to it Chris. (And I do know what they are for)

                      Lol... me too!!! Glad I'm not the only crazy person!!!

                      Fab work though... but even after a quick read of Wiki I'm not entirely understanding what it's for so I guess I don't need one!!!

                        niddy noddy

                        I have a niddy noddy! And several drop spindles, which I am crummy at, but I'm good with a wheel. I have no nostepinnes.

                        Yours look very nice! You must have a spinning friend, or do some yourself. OR you just came up with a nifty idea! There are a lot of hand spun yarn sellers on etsy.

                        Now let's see...who's the patron saint of spinners? I used to know. You could etch her name on them somewhere...

                            You need to go to a medieval fair or two, or advertise these on Lliving History - you'd do well amongst the re-enactors there.
